differently. the problem with the gun control debate from the perspective of folks who want gun control laws is they need to say, we don't want to target lawful gun owners. 47% of adults in this country say they have a gun in the home. you want to say, we want to separate out the people who are gun trafficking and doing other things that promote the climate of gun violence from that cause of lawful gun owners. i think the nra, they win by losing. the more you have a debate around these issues the more it seems we're going to get more gun laws, the nra builds intensity that way. >> erin, that's the mistake that i've been saying from day one. this should not be a gun control conversation. it should be a gun violence conversation. and if you are talking gun control, you're playing on the nra's field. if you say gun violence and you broaden it, that's a different debate. that's been the problem from day one. >> all right, thanks to all of you. you always want to have the home field advantage. if they have it, they have it. >>> doctors racing to save the vision of a man who was attacked with acid

for that second suspect is the main concern at this hour and i'm told by a law enforcement source that one of the main focuses that they are looking at right now, law enforcement agencies there on the ground is a wooded area next to the campus of lone star college. they believe that's where this second suspect might have fled into so they are paying a great deal of attention in that wooded area and i believe that creates a whole level of terrain and law enforcement officials on the ground must deal with. so at this hour that is what they appear to be focusing on to find that second suspect. >> and we're getting more information, ed, some of it obviously very consistent with what you're hearing, this coming in from the harris county sheriff's media relations department. let me just update our viewers on what they are saying. as i said, a lot of it consistent with what your reporting shows. they reiterate one suspect is in custody, three people taken into custody. they continue to interview all witnesses to gain as much witnesses at the campus library and five agencies have secured a perimet
